Planning your summer getaway can help offset the winter blahs, which includes dreaming about renting an awesome pad. With Bravo’s Summer House gearing up to return, summer seekers will get another peek into what it is like to rent a lavish home in the tony Hamptons.

Renting a summer share is popular among professional millennials, where eight or more people will pool their money into a large summer rental. Homes are typically multi-million dollar mansions with many located in exclusive communities. For the second year in a row, Summer House will film at the same Water Mill location. So how much could it cost to rent a crib like that and what amenities do you get?

The neighbors don’t love ‘Summer House’ the way you love ‘Summer House’

Although the Hamptons are known as a playground for the elite, neighbors aren’t happy about the party Summer House brings. Several residents told The New York Times they didn’t want the show to encourage bad behavior and increase traffic.

Neighbors who purchased homes next to the Summer House were also not told a Bravo show would be filmed next door. “Not one of the buyers was advised before closing that their multimillion-dollar retreat is next door to where a trashy reality TV show is being filmed,” a resident told Page Six. Plus families, which included small children and grandchildren, were concerned about the lewd behavior the children could witness.

The ‘Summer House’ is for sale


According to Zillow, 1451 Deerfield Road, which is where the show is filmed, is for sale. The house is offered for $4,195,000. However, the real estate site estimates the home’s worth to be $4,887,471.

The home has been for sale for over a decade, according to Zillow. Initially put on the market in 2008 for $5,300,000, the home went through a number of price reductions. It was also removed and returned to the market many times. In 2015 the home was offered for rent. The 2015 rental price was $125,000 per month.

‘Summer House’ was listed for rent in 2018

After being pulled from the market, the home was re-offered for rent again in 2018, according to Zillow. In July 2018, owners asked $100,000 per month for rent. It was during this time when Summer House was likely to be filming season three.

After last summer ended, the home was once again pulled from the market. Beginning in September, the home is once again up for sale.

What is your return on investment?

For $100,000 a month, renters receive considerable square footage and amenities. The eight bedrooms, nine bath home is 6,500 square feet. The renovated home sits on more than five acres of land. Appliances are top of the line, which includes Viking in the gourmet kitchen, a smart-wired, state of the art sound system and a three car garage.

Three of the upstairs bedrooms include balconies that overlook the heated gunite pool and hot tub. The home also has an all-weather tennis court and lavish landscape. For more recreation, the finished basement has an entertainment center, kitchenette, and full bath.
